I would highly recommend studying French in UCD for a number of reasons. From a learning point of view, we had a lot of small group tutorials, which meant that we not only benefitted from a hands-on teaching approach but it also gave students a great chance to build friendships and to share in the learning experience. Our tutors and lecturers were always available to discuss any issue or concern that we may have had, and were very generous with their time. (more…)
Studying Spanish with the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics not only presented me with an unforgettable opportunity to live and work abroad but also a knowledge and understanding of the many languages, cultures and traditions that form part of the Hispanic world. The modules relating to Hispanic art, film and literature are particular highlights of my time in the school and memories of which I share with my colleagues today. Since graduating I have made the short journey from the Newman building to the Applied Language Centre in UCD where I now work as part of our Pathways Programme – developing an entry way into UCD for international students. This is thanks to the experience which studying Spanish with SLCL has awarded me.
